I like to randomly kick into handstands. It is something I have done for years, but not consistently. I stopped doing it the last couple of years. I make up I stopped trying because I met a friend who can kick up into them anywhere, any time and walk around. She needs no wall. She appears just as comfortable on her hands as her feet.
Anyway, I have not yet mastered the handstand like my friend Tawney, but I am happy that it is back in my life. This sudden urge that comes out of nowhere to stand on my hands. I am working on not using a wall, so I will spring up about 5 feet away in case I can't stay up my toes can catch the wall and lift my legs back to the air.
It is fun. It is amazing. It is great for our bodies, our internal systems to be turned upside down.
I plant my hands shoulder width distance apart. I spread my fingers wide and press into all parts of my hands. I move my shoulders to stack over my wrists, squeeze my core in and then kick up. I am up! I am upside down! BREATHE!!!!!!!! I always have to remind myself to breathe when I am turned upside down.
I come down laughing at that metaphor for life. When my world gets turned upside down, I remind myself to breathe. It's a pretty good one, don't you think? When your world gets turned upside down, just remember to breathe and you will make it through just fine.
